19 of the The Best Met Gala Looks of All Time

The fashion world certainly hasn’t been immune to COVID-19 crisis. In mid-March, Met Gala chairwoman Anna Wintour announced that the 2020 Met Gala would be postponed. “Due to the unavoidable and responsible decision by the Metropolitan Museum to close its doors, About Time, and the opening night gala, will be postponed to a later date,” she wrote on a post on Vogue.com. 

That hasn’t stopped fans of what’s arguably the biggest event in the fashion calendar celebrating the first Monday in May, however. High Fashion Twitter is hosting its own event with various challenges – find out about it here – and Billy Porter and Vogue are asking fashion fanatics to recreate their own looks from home for the #MetGalaChallenge.

Since we won’t be getting our usual fix of head-turning red carpet looks, we’ve rounded up a few of our all-time favourite looks from previous years.

Take a look at our favourite past Met Gala looks in the gallery below. Feeling inspired? Why not join the #MetGalaChallenge which you can find out more about here.

Cute critters steal the show in Gucci’s latest campaign

Jared Leto, Harry Styles, Florence Welch and Lana Del Rey are just a handful of the big names Gucci has turned to in the past to bring its campaigns to life. But for its pre-fall 2020 campaign, the Italian fashion house eschewed its usual penchant for celebrities in favour of a handful of furry yet extremely adorable animals.

The premise behind the aptly named ‘So Deer To Me Campaign’ is sweet and simple: “In a child’s world, any pet—a skunk, a frog or an owl—can be a best friend.”

The very cute campaign features owls, hedgehogs, deer, bunny rabbits, ducks, frogs and other little critters. Be prepared to fawn over them all in the campaign video

 

 

Earlier this year, Gucci partnered with The Lion’s Share Fund, which works with businesses to raise funds to protect endangered species and their habitats. Each time that an animal is featured in a Gucci advertisement, 0.5% of their media spend goes directly to The Lion’s Share to help animals in need.

To celebrate the partnership, last week Gucci released a series of videos with acclaimed natural historian David Attenborough. You can watch on of them below and head over to Gucci’s Instagram to watch the others and also meet some of the cute stars of the pre-fall campaign.

In February this year, Gucci partnered with The @lionssharefund, which raises funds to protect endangered species and their natural habitats. The House donates 0.5% of its media spend to The #LionsShare Fund every time an animal is featured in its advertisements. Oak trees can live for centuries and produce acorns, a food source for squirrels, mice and deer.
